Daftmill 2010 Cask Strength Release

Tasting

Notes

This charming release opens with lashings of vanilla essence and spiced custard on the nose. With time, distillery character builds, giving honeyed beeswax, sweet lemon candy, apricot jam, and hints of fresh cake dough. The palate balances the spicey oak with the fruitier distillate notes before giving way to notes of caramelized brown sugar, toffee and hints of mashed banana and marzipan. Wood spice is dominant on the long finish, giving waves of warming cinnamon and dried ginger.

Daftmill is a true farm distillery with a unique production schedule. All the barley used for production is farmed by Francis Cuthbert on the estate. The whisky is all distilled by Francis in the farm off-season; two months in summer and two months in winter – this is a very traditional way of running a distillery that hasn’t been seen in Scotland since the 1800s. The fifteen first fill ex bourbon barrels used to make this bottling were distilled and filled between January and July 2010.
